About Fish River Canyon
Located in the South of Namibia, the Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world and the largest in Africa, as well as the second most visited tourist attraction in the country. It features a gigantic ravine, in total about 100 miles long, up to 16 miles wide and in places almost 550 metres deep. The Fish River, from which the canyon gets its name, is the longest interior river in Namibia. It cuts deep into the plateau which is today dry, stony and sparsely covered with hardy drought-resistant plants. The river flows intermittently, usually flooding in late summer; the rest of the year it becomes a chain of long narrow pools.Read More
